The Ukrainian couple Oksana and Sergey already had a daughter, but they wanted to start a family again. They thought that by having two kids, their family would be complete.
When Oksana discovered she was pregnant, she immediately noticed a difference from her last pregnancy. She considered having twins, but she persuaded herself that this couldn’t be the case because no one in the family had ever had twins.
“No one in our family has ever had a twin pregnancy. I was certain I would never go through anything like this, Oksana told the German news organization Heftig.
But her pregnancy took an unexpected turn that left people in shock all across the world.
She went in for an ultrasound, and as soon as she saw her doctor’s shocked expression, she knew something was wrong. He was going to break some amazing news.
My heart briefly stopped when I observed the doctor’s expression of shock, Oksana recalled. Then I overheard him murmur, “You deserve to have a big house by the sea…,” or words to that effect.
Oksana was astonished by what she had heard. How many babies could she possibly be carrying at once? Well, it ended up being. The likelihood of having quintuplets is one in every 47 458 321 pregnancies, thus she was carrying them.
She described how she felt as she tried to digest the news as “almost like a nightmare, as though I would wake up at any moment.” “This kind of news takes time to comprehend. How would we manage to care for so many kids, she questioned to her husband Sergey.
Oksana was admitted to the hospital for a C-section when she was in the thirty-first week of her pregnancy. She described the birth room staff as “treating me like I was made of porcelain- they were extremely cautious.”
Even though the babies arrived a little premature, they were all in excellent health.
Being the first quintuplets to be born in Ukraine, Daria, Alexandra, Denis, Vladislav, and David instantly gained notoriety in their own nation.
Oksana and Sergey have been outstanding parents to their “five treasures” and their older daughter despite having to raise five youngsters at once.
The family relocated to a larger apartment when the babies were born.
The quintuplets are now eight years old.
